Jenkins’ remark

merrill, not to defend her but Jenkins just got into office. So, you can't quite count her in that lot at this point.

I will say that Jenkins is the same person who called former Rep. Jim Ryun "babe" during a debate. When I found out Jenkins made the "great white hope" statement, I thought it was pretty poor. But I wasn't shocked. She's no Nancy Kassebaum.

What is your favorite kind of nut?

I used to be able to name every nut that there was. And it used to drive my mother crazy, because she used to say, "Harlan Pepper, if you don't stop naming nuts," and the joke was that we lived in Pine Nut, and I think that's what put it in my mind at that point. So she would hear me in the other room, and she'd just start yelling. I'd say, "Peanut. Hazelnut. Cashew nut. Macadamia nut." That was the one that would send her into going crazy. She'd say, "Would you stop naming nuts!" And Hubert used to be able to make the sound, he couldn't talk, but he'd go "rrrawr rrawr" and that sounded like Macadamia nut. Pine nut, which is a nut, but it's also the name of a town. Pistachio nut. Red pistachio nut. Natural, all natural white pistachio nut.

Backers of "In God We Trust" license plate get $10,000 break from state

All this did was open the door to a challenge on the rule.

Just watch ... the Westboro Baptist Church will want a special plate that says something like "God Hates America" and use this situation as an opportunity as a way to push buttons. The church will do knowing it will be denied and so a lawsuit can be filed ... which will then gather more media attention.

It's just one of the stories that could result of the legislature's actions. It's really annoying. These people are elected and lack any sense of the possible rammifications of their actions.

The 87 legislators who voted in favor of this would have been better off donating money to the cause and getting one of these plates if they are that interested in it. If they all would have just donated $50 each for the cause just $3,350 more would need to be raised. That would be cheaper than a possible lawsuit.

Backers of "In God We Trust" license plate get $10,000 break from state

I don't care what the plate says. This sets a bad presidence. The rule was in place for a purpose. If there was no specific group wanting the plate, it would have been easy to still raise the funds. Just appoint someone the head of the spearheading group and start a Web site so people can make donations. In today's age of technology the excuse of not being able to raise funds isn't a good enough one in this case. And yeah ... maybe the plates will pay for themselves. Fine. But if you do this for this license plate ... the legislature is now going to have to do it for everyone. This is B.S.

List of events affected by weather

Spacystaci ...I'm sure you've made it to work by now. But I just wanted to say, perhaps in the future you should use the time spent complaining on the message boards about work not being called off toward giving yourself time to drive to work in a safe way. Cheers!

Douglas County voter turnout falls below prediction

My mom voted for Bush on 2004. She regretted it. That happens. Guess we'll have four years to see how we feel, huh?

Obama wins presidency

My fellow Americans unhappy with the outcome of the Presidential Election, I was unhappy with the outcomes of the presidential elections in 2000 and 2004. However, I still remained a citizen of the United States, continued to live my life, word hard and do what I felt was right.You can do the same now. It won't be as bad as you think. In fact, you may even like it. I can't say that's completely true about myself. But I certainly tried.Thanks and bless Barack Obama and the U.S.
